My First Illusion Knit

As many of you already know, each Christmas my family draws names. You are then expected to make a home made gift for that person (its not the only gift… its just one gift they receive). This last Christmas, I selected my brother’s name. I had NO idea what I was going to make him. Without planning anything, I saw a small illusion knit pattern on Ravelry… and that got me to thinking.

I ended up really researching out some larger pieces, and omgooses – there are some AMAZING items out there (like any item from Pat Ashforth and Steve Plummer from Woolly Thoughts).

I looked into how to make my own chart and how to actually do the piece and got to it. I figure if you are going to do it – go big or go home :) No “start off small” for me – no way!

So… now that the holiday has passed and the gift has been given (and loved, as far as I could tell) – I present to you: my first illusion knit.

BTW: its a griffin, in case you can’t tell *laughs*

And here I am showing you what I have going on in the craft section of my life…


Pure Yarn Silliness

We genuinely like to have fun together – and that comes out when we are yarn shopping too!

Here is a quick video (intro is longer than the funny) of my son being completely silly while we were out yarn shopping last weekend.


[Mail] My Bumper Sticker Win!

I don’t know if any of you saw or knew, but Crochet Concupiscence had a giveaway – and I’m one of the winners!

I open my package on camera, give my own babbling type review, and give out some information on the giveaway, including that it came from her sponsor, BuildASign.

My most recent installment of Fresh Off the Hook!


[FOTH] November 21, 2011

This is a video family I have joined on YouTube. All the lovely crocheters share their finished works via video. I figured I’d post the first few on my blog and if my blog readers (not YT followers) prefer I do not post them, then please do leave a comment. I’m still undecided if I should post them on my blog or leave them specific for people who want to follow me on YouTube.

In order to see the whole list of people who are participating in fresh off the hook (FOTH), you’ll have to click through to YouTube and then expand the notes area for the video.
